Star Item
  • Description

    Titles read: "PIC MUSICAL - SANTIAGO LOPEZ and his Rumba Band plus PAULA LENNARD".

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Item opens with great shots of exotic dancer Paula Lennard on the set of a nightclub. Spotlight on Paula as she makes snakey movements with her arms and sways her hips as the music starts, courtesy of Santiago Lopez and his Rumba Band. Paula wears a bra top and transparent skirt over panties - almost belly dancer style.

    Spotlight moves around the stage, picking up members of the band in flouncy shirts and a couple at a table enjoying the show. The band pick up the speed and Paula dances accordingly. Good shots of the musicians playing. Santiago really goes for it with those maracas!

    Cannot find details of music played but sounds like traditional rumba - great rhythm.
